Bootlegging leads to the untimely death of four people in Bihar. Out of the three, one died after consuming spurious liquor while the other was declared dead at Siwan hospital.
Talking about the deaths, the Sub-divisional public grievance officer in Siwan, Abhishek Chandan said that seven others are currently being treated at the Siwan hospital. He also added that the cause of the deaths is yet to be ascertained which will be cleared only after the post-mortem reports.
According to reports, the deceased namely Janak Bean alias Janak Prasad and Naresh Bean of the Bala village in Siwan’s Nabiganj complained of stomach pain in the night and their vision was also impacted, following which their relatives then took them to the Siwan Sadar Hospital where the doctors declared them ‘brought dead’.
“At least two persons were declared dead after they were sent to Siwan Sadar Hospital as they had consumed this spurious liquor. Around dozens of people are still unwell and the police have set up camps in the village,” the District Councillor of the village, Ramesh Kumar said.
The death count due to this spurious liquor consumption is likely to be increased.
